    Model X Hitch on Model S?

    For that reason I was considering a hitch mounted electric winch with remote control so that I could pull my plane in and out of the hangar more easily. Not sure though if the 7 pin hitch connector can supply the amperage needed for the winch. Need to do more research.

    2022 X class iii hitch receiver vertical wt limit

    I am a bit confused about vertical weight limit. All tow hitches I find has only the tow and tongue weight limit. I thought tongue weight (the force acting vertically downward on the ball) IS the vertical weight. What am I missing?

    Model X Hitch on Model S?

    This one will fit and I have a brand new one for sale if you are interested. However this is a Class 1 hitch. I used it to get the bolt pattern for the Class 3 (Drawtite 76143 for ModelX) hitch that I modified and installed on my MS.

    Class 3 Tow Hitch For Model S

    That's great. For tge wiring harness I wanted to but actually didn't end up pulling the 12V+ all the way from the battery‚ instead I tapped into the wire for the power tailgate. Putting inverter in the trunk is probably not a good idea (unless u put a very low powered one)‚ considering the...

    Modes S75D Range Extension Software?

    A friend is looking at buying a 2016MS75D with 150K kms and the owner claims a 100% charge gives him 475km (see picture attached). Mine is a 2017MS75D and I have never seen anything higher than 420km even when new and after 4 years and 120K kms I get 375km with a full charge. Unlike this car...

    Is Unlimited Supercharging Speed Limited?

    On my 2017 MS75D I don't recall seeing anything above 109kwh charging speed even when I run the battery down below 5%. Does it mean I am throttled?

    Class 3 Tow Hitch For Model S

    The 4th picture shows the 2 notches behind the cutout for your receiver. Cut as much rubbery material as you can without touching the plastic. The 5th pic shows similar notches but those will be covered up when you reinstall the red light reflectors. Nothing shows from outside. Goodluck with...

    Route planning through mountains

    The range is often cut in half during a winter rush hour commute. Is there a way to plan trips with custom (manually entered) range or energy consumption numbers?

    Class 3 Tow Hitch For Model S

    I was finally able to finish the project. It took a while but I cannot be happier with the way it came out. I have followed the same steps as @Evoforce‚ except that all his heard work saved me from all the trial an error that he had to go through. Thanks @Evoforce. These are the steps I...

    Installed lighted rear applique on Model 3

    I always enjoy reading about your mods. Is there a video rear lighted applique installation that shows how to access the reverse light wire in a model S. I installed a 7 pin hitch harness but its missing the signal for reverse lights now.

    Class 3 Tow Hitch For Model S

    There are many reports out there in various forums (refering to ex Tesla engineers) that claims Tesla was in the process of certifying Model S for towing but then simply ran out of time before the release date and then later they got busy with other priorities. Many suspect this was...

    Model X Hitch on Model S?

    Thanks. Rooter mentioned the ultrasonic sensor and I also watched the installation video of echoHitch where they recommended flipping that sensor upside down for better clearance. What was the configuration on your mod?

    Class 3 Tow Hitch For Model S

    A final argument could be warranty complications and that is indeed a valid argument. If anything breaks after towing Tesla may 'try' to deny warranty but then they have to prove that the damage was directly caused by towing. In which case they will need a whole lot of explaining to do about why...

    Class 3 Tow Hitch For Model S

    If you can tell us what exactly is different in Model X that gives it the 5000lb towing capacity the whole community will be grateful to you‚ because nobody seems to have a definitive answer on that. Not really. According to EU standard the vendor had to show extensive test result with the...

    Class 3 Tow Hitch For Model S

    Yes. Not sure if you have followed other discussions related to hithes‚ but regulations and enforcements are much more stringent in Europe and a German vendor has already certified a 4000lb hitch for MS after extensive testing. I was looking

    Model X Hitch on Model S?

    Thanks for your reply. What year is your car? Looking at your picture it seems the receiver is almost touching the chrome trim‚ so it was a very close fit‚ hence my worry if it will fit on mine the same way. Do you know anyone who followed your method on a 2016-2018 MS.

    Class 3 Tow Hitch For Model S

    Please elaborate what that reason is. I would be very curious to know‚ based on what data are they making class 1 hitches but not class 3.

    Class 3 Tow Hitch For Model S

    I appreciate your replies but I have read all the threads discussing all the arguments for and against hitchses on MS. Regardless of what Tesla says‚ aftermarket vendors are making class 1 hitches for Model S and people are using them at their own risk. I opened this thread to discuss Max towing...

    Class 3 Tow Hitch For Model S

    Hi Everyone‚ I am looking to tow a camper (3200lb empty and 4800lb loaded) with my 2017 Model S but couldn't find any Class 3 hitch for MS. I looked at all the posts on this forum as well as Tesla's forum but couldn't find a solution. @Evoforce used a MX hitch on MS to tow a 7000lb load but I...

    Model X Hitch on Model S?

    @Evoforce I am very interested in installing a Class 3 hitch but was wondering what was the year of your Model S? I looked at your work from the other thread and noticed that your rear bumper trim looks different from my 2017 Model S.

    Vendor It’s Electric! The EcoHitch and Tesla Relationship

    @Torklift I read that Model X and Model S share the same chasis and drive train‚ but yet I am unable to find any class 3 (5000 lb towing capacity) hitch for my MS75D. Are u aware of any hitch that I can use to pull a 3800lb camper?
  31. A

    Ah yes. Tesla service at it again in the East.

    Will it benefit the consumers if battery factory‚ power tran factory and the car assembly factory were separated under anti trust law?

    LIftgate glass contacted body during closing, cracked glass, warranty refused!

    Similar to this. When u call in‚ send a bug report from the car or email an issue‚ there are no acknowledgements or any other means provided to you to track progress. This is not how defect tracking is expected to work in a tech company. These are systemic issues indicative of poor focus on...
